||The incentive for writing these pages was the start of a complete edition of the work of RaimonPanikkar, a few weeks before his death. They are divided into three part and sketch an initial understanding of his hinking, which is now definitive. The first discusses his use of etymology, which he often employed to dig deeper into the comprehension of that which he set forth, analyzed and interpreted. The second, which I call poetic, discusses his use of thoughts and images by poets and writers as a guide or complement to an idea. The third addresseshis creation of neologisms, a method whichhe used to capture the richness of a thought in a more precise or useful technical word when expressing himself in the various languages in which he wrote his work. He respected and valued all languages of the world equally; being that they are, as he used to say, the maximum richness, along with silence, of humanity.
